why i love ishikawa?
there are just so many beautiful hidden treasures in this area
and one of them is cafe
just walk around
turn at a random corner
a nice cafe can be found
today i had a couple nice new discoveries:
bento shop (take-out lunch box)
i actually did some research and made an order the day before going
here is what i came out with
the bag has a stamp on it む 'mu'--the initial of the shop's name
and the staple is in pink!!
what's in the box??
dessert included?!?! WOW!! lovely! (it's a whole wheat lemon scone...yummy~)
found a nice spot with shades along the river
oh...i am hungry!!
as if i am not satsified with the delicious scone...
i got myself a nice japanese sweet too...hehe...yes..call me greedy~
aren't those balls on the top adorable?
i found an interesting gallery/cafe when i was taking a walk after lunch
too bad it was closed...but i will definitely come back
and...what i found after more walking is another nice cafe...one that is opened!!
let's go in~ (i was craving for caffine)
white walls...pink and blue tiles floor...wooden tables and wooden chairs with red cushions
notice the little details: there is a dialing phone hanging on the wall...and a time-card slot!! how cool!!
cheese cake with a hint of maple syrup....hmmmmmmmmmmm!
and here comes my coffee!!!
wait!! what's that on the side??
oh!!! sugar cookies!!
aren't they just ADORABLE?!?
that's why i love where i live~
more to come!!

after the 'exotic'(hehe) Kinky Boots
i picked up 'Young @ Heart'
a documentary featuring a choir with members who are over the age of 70
it's a really heart-warming film
i absolutely love it
i watched the movie with my granny which made it a little more magical~☆
there are many favorite scenes
but the one that stroke me the most was where 2 members practicing 'Fix You' by Coldplay (one of my favs of Coldplay btw)
i love kids
but after working in Kawakita
i am totally falling in love with the elderly also(don't take it the wrong way please...hehe)
they fascinate me everytime i am with them
in that little, fragile body
holds so much treasure, knowledge, wonders and surprises

it has been a while before my last DVD
took a bike ride to the DVD rental shop
and came home with 'ONCE'
it's a beautiful movie
with lovely music
i love how the movie minimize the verbal dialogue between the characters
but it's filled with rich emotions and feelings
one thing i really appreciate about this film is that there is no unnecessary sexual scene...it's something you can't find now...
p.s. i want to visit Dublin someday
p.s. i am sorry...as you can tell..i am just really bad at writing movie reviews
